Pareid "Drown" Humans in an Installation Full of Red-Like Organs

Madani Matadian | Wednesday, 27 April 2022

A lecture hall at the College of Architects of Madrid is decorated in a reversible installation dominated by fiery red. This installation is made of PVC pipe that will be donated as construction material when this installation is finished being “exhibited”. Pareid, a studio that designed this installation named the project “Everywhere and Nowhere”.

This London-based design studio designed the installation in the lecture hall by evoking themes such as being in a dark room to wash photos and even giving rise to the feeling of being in the stomach of a giant animal. This is because Pareid decorated the lecture hall by installing red neon lights and arranging similar-sized, corrugated PVC pipes. Everything is arranged in an attractive manner so that anyone can "dissolve" in the atmosphere.

“All the structures that we put together lining the walls, ceilings, and floors will immerse visitors in the organ. Like the engine and the red lights all of which would be familiar at an unfamiliar moment," she said.

Everywhere and Nowhere is part of the three-day Urvanity Art Exhibition. Therefore, the setting of this installation is quick and short enough considering the limited time. In response, Pareid used clamps and ropes to hold the tube in various settings around the room. So that at the time of disassembly, it does not leave any traces in the room.

After the exhibition is over, the Everywhere and Nowhere structure will be donated to a small construction company in a nearby town for reuse. The project aims to address issues surrounding temporary installations and avoid dumping industrial waste.

Afterward, Pareid donated the corrugated tube to a small construction company in a nearby town, which has since used it to protect electrical wiring in one of its recent buildings. It also aims to increase community aspirations about the importance of processing structures that can be reused.
